    Force motors have been making engines for Mercedes for long time. What more - Mercedes Benz uses the paint shop of none other than our own TATA to paint their cars. They are planning to invest in their Chakan plan to have a paint shop set up soon.

    Force motors makes one very good, capable suv - the Trax Gurkha - it is a pity that they never bothered to advertise it. It is nearly impossible to get a TD and service is almost non existent.

    On a different note, a small update from my side - We became parents of a baby boy last month.

    Ohhh...:A. They will surely agree, why not? I hate this money supremacy that Icons like "Ducati" is auctioned at roadside.
    VW is also interested in buying "Alfa Romeo" like anything & they have been literally chasing Marchionne for 2 Yrs now. They are ready to pay in excess of 3 billion dollars as per their last statement. Enticing FIAT every now or then to sell off loss making AR. FIAT, you sell it & see how VW eats up with the AR's marque, the sales of other manufacturers (including your's).

    Now, put the German stamp on Ducati & boast how advanced German's are in sports cars as well as sports bikes! Aka like Lamborghini & Bugatti. If you can't better it, buy it.
    No doubt, Ferrari is also destined for such a fate after 50-60 yrs from now:(.

    @ENKI: Thanks Bro. I hope now Duc will get lot more budget for R&D. Heard Hero or Mahindra was also bidding for Duc but Audi beat them all. Better than Duc going to come Chinese hands.

    I don't see an issue in MJD to take high altitudes. It is indeed a delight to drive MJD on ghats. The real problem would be the GC of our cars. But, still even that fear also vanished after the Ravi Ji's Leh expedition.
